In many of the world’s more mature PV markets, repowering – the replacement or upgrade of all or part of an existing PV system – is an increasingly common strategy for asset owners looking to boost their returns or overcome performance issues caused by aging components. There is, however, much more to consider than simply hardware replacement, and various risks that need to be managed. In this pv magazine Webinar, SMA introduces services it has developed specifically for the repowering market, and takes us through the whole process via examples from successful projects.
Alencon’s silicon carbide-based String Power Optimizers and Transmitters enable the repowering of solar plants which need to replace 600 V inverters with newer 1,000 V or 1,500 V gear, or for project owners who wish to maximize electricity generation at aging and imperfect facilities with creative engineering techniques.
Spanish company TSO, The South Oracle, has patented exclusive software for the automatic identification of failures in images taken with drones overflying solar panels, which in addition to guaranteeing the maintenance of photovoltaic plants, also allows repowering. To develop the OSR – optimized solar repowering – project, TSO has a team of engineers and scientists […]
Older PV power plants do not always meet all the requirements for modern solar energy generation, which is why SMA Solar Technology AG (SMA) is now offering its SMA Repowering packages featuring customized solutions for modernizing PV power plants worldwide.
The concept of revamping and repowering is one of the newest terms in the solar industry. As the installed base of PV systems ages, the concept of upgrading and improving operating plants becomes increasingly relevant to both manufacturers and PV plant asset managers. However, the real market size for new PV components in existing plants will depend on the characteristics of each plant, the overall regulatory framework and the economic benefits that will accrue to asset managers.
The South Korean solar firm will supply its Q.Plus modules to German services provider Adler Solar to install at older solar sites in need of upgrade and repowering. The option remains open for Adler to upgrade the supply deal to 30 MW.
Stillger & Stahl commissioned ADLER Solar to prevent performance deltas experienced by two ground-mounted photovoltaic systems – and the result is a significant increase in performance
Repower by Solar Universe today announced the appointment of Daniel Rubin as its new SVP and Chief Revenue Officer.
